    Not sure if I should buy a bike blind - so your thoughts on an old Brian Rourke 531c framed bike with Mavic wheels and 12 speed Shimano - I know the callipers are 105 so can I assume the rest is too?

    Could it be worth a punt at £60?

    Brian Rourke steel bikes are very popular in this area,especially with the more "experienced" riders so at £60 it's definitely worth a punt.

    I can't speak for the rest of the bike, but that will be a good quality, well made frame. I have a 653 steel frame of his.

    That sounds lovely. I love the feeling of buying second hand - that thing of never quite knowing whether you're goign to get a turkey or a gem, but going for it anyway. Shopping - even bike shopping - bores the knackers off me normally. Taking a punt on second hand puts some life into it.
